Daddy issues. All the best superheroes got ’em. Batman watched his parents die, and now his daddy from an alternate dimension is back and putting him through hell in an effort to “save him” from being Batman. Superman’s daddy taught him all kinds of messed up stuff in Man of Steel, like how to not save people just to protect his own identity, and we know how neck-snappingly that turned out. The Hulk’s daddy is a literal demon currently tormenting him. Venom has daddy issues and is currently passing them along to the next generation. And now, Riri Williams is about to join the ranks of the world’s greatest heroes with some daddy issues of her own, as seen in this preview of Ironheart #8.
Ironheart is currently trying to track down a mystery involving the Ten Rings, but something is bothering her about the whole thing.
It happened back when she fought their leader, which was a traumatic experience… but not for the reasons Xavier suggests…
Riri’s father, Riri Williams Sr., died before she was born. And her stepfather was later killed as well. But something about this villain…
Yup. Riri Williams, you’ve finally made it!
Ironheart #8 hits stores on Wednesday.

As Ironheart creeps closer to understanding the powerful people who have been wreaking magical havoc around her, she needs to talk to someone who can give her a clue… and it’s none other than the Sorcerer Supreme himself, DOCTOR STRANGE!
